What you need to know before fishing in Ontario. Includes how to get a
fishing licence, Outdoors Card, city fishing, camping on crown land, and
eating Ontario fish.
To fish or hunt in Ontario, most people need a valid licence. This includes:
- an Outdoors Card (valid for 3 calendar years)
- fishing and/or hunting licence tags (valid for 1 or 3 calendar years)
You need an Outdoors Card before
you can buy a licence tag.
A licence tag is either:
- a separate document you carry with your plastic Outdoors Card or
- directly printed on the back of your Outdoors Card
You must carry both
an Outdoors Card and the appropriate licence tag whenever
you fish or hunt.
